Cannabis contains many miracle compounds at least 60 known chemicals called cannabinoids, which activate naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors in your body.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the main component responsible for the psychoactive effects, or “high,” cannabis is known for. While THC is known to have some medicinal value, there has been recent investigation into a new cannabinoid that is rumored to have more medicinal benefits than any single pharmaceutical drug on the market.
CBD is the second most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis. And the one in my opinion a Natural Miracle Compound. Research done by G.W. Pharmaceuticals suggests that CBD could be used for treating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, diabetes, nausea, bowel disorders, and many other hard-to-control side effects. CBD has even demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is currently being explored.
While it was originally believed that THC is a breakdown product of CBD, it is now known that both THC and CBD are actually metabolites of their decarboxylated acidic forms, THCa and CBDa. The compound has medicinal benefits without the “high”. This makes CBD appealing to folks who are looking for an alternative to their current meds and maintain a “clear head”.
